Eating At The Buena Vista Hotel In Mosman
About half an hour out of Sydney sits the Buena Vista Hotel.
It’s unassuming to look at from the outside and its ground level strikes you as a local’s place of worship; cheap beer, easy settings, family friendly and enough room to roam so you don’t need to rub shoulders with anyone not your kind. Venture vertically, though, and you’re reading a different story.
Half al fresco, half covered, enough room to hire wholly or spacious enough to slink through and hide in a corner, the pub offers everything from casual breezes to intimate settings, perfect for a dinner for one on the way home, two on a date or 30-odd on a night of degustation and menu ravaging.
Their ownership is new, the menu is new, the drinks are new and the vibe and atmosphere of the place – not to mention its reputation Sydney-wide – is new; well, more reinvigorated.
The entrees of truffle drizzled potato chips, beef sliders, calamari and aranchini and other goodies are just a testament to how seriously the venue is taking its redefined new direction forward. Fitting more into the gastro pub realm of Sydney’s wide and hugely varied food offering, the pub is a welcome addition to the fold.
Buena Vista is not afraid of a portion control backfire, in the best of ways, of course. Their servings are large and quality quite great for the price you’d expect to pay. Whether you’ve got the hunger of ten men, or are a more modest eater, the Buena Vista’s options like pan seared salmon, lamb ribs with chips and salad sides of a generous 400g sirloin dressed generously with sides, the food doesn’t leave you wanting.
Desserts and their sensational options, for the sweet tooth, are incredible. Waffles with salted caramel. Say no more.
With its bright and welcoming decor, family friendly atmosphere and exceptional food and drink offering, the Buena Vista Hotel is the destination for a guaranteed good time in Sydney’s North.
